Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there.

I've installed to a usb drive --and it runs fine from a Netbook.

The main problem with Virtual Machines is that they just EAT ram for breakfast.

You need to have at least 4GB of RAM on your host computer --then even a 1GB W2K3 server VM will run just fine.

For typical applications the GUEST VM won't be intensively CPU bound so processing power (at least on Home computing systems) isn't normally a problem.

Forget about XP mode -- run from Virtual box or vmware.
